Apple is riding high the waves and the company is closing another successful year. Its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are selling like hot pancakes, but fans can’t help but be curious about what will the next iPhone bring. And if rumors will turn out to be true, then in 2017, Apple will release not two, but three flagships: the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus and a third high-end model codenamed “Ferrari”, which will sport a full metal design, an OLED display with no borders and with an embedded home button.
According to chain sources, the three iPhone models that will be uncovered next year are designed as D20, D21, and D22 and they correspond to the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus and “Ferrari”. The latter will support wireless charging and will have an internal logic board that will be spread in two halves, connecting to each other using a ribbon cable.
On the Board no. 1 will be found the A11 chipset and NAND flash storage, while the Board no. 2 will house the cellular components.
As for the SIM card tray, its new location will be towards the bottom of the handset, in order to make more room for other internal components. Apple has already done this with its iPad Pro tablet. And if the iPhone 7 arrived in a new matte black color, its successor is expected to introduce a new red color.
Other reports claim that the “Ferrari” model is actually the iPhone 8, which, according to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it might employ a 5.1- or 5.2-inch OLED manufactured by Samsung.
But it remains to be seen if Apple will manage to build the next iPhone in the US, as the President-elect Donald Trump has asked the company, in order to save American jobs.
